The dipping temperatures in York aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to fantasize about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during cooler months. Of course, your air conditioner plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to complete annual air conditioner service.
We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort this time of year as a well-tuned air conditioner. That’s why air conditioner service is suggested to be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend these cooler months not knowing if their air conditioner is going to keep them covered the whole time?
Already check off your annual air conditioner service? Here are a handful of other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need addressed. You may be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors offer the opportunity for a lot of warm air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you find any issues, weatherstripping is basic to replace and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other easy fixes you can handle once you’ve had annual air conditioner service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to complete on the weekend.
